What is my Revenue Growth Rate?

Revenue Growth Rate is a great Key Performance Indicators (KPI) for measuring the rate that your business is growing in terms of sales.  

Revenue and sales are generally interchangeable terms.  

Revenue is usually the first item shown in the profit and loss statement.

As revenue is a profit and loss item, it is measured over a period of time, i.e., from 1 July 2017 to 30 June 2018.

Most of the businesses that we come across have some desire to improve and part of that is increasing their turnover. 

Increasing your turnover will not necessarily improve your business or increase your profitability but it can be a key factor.

Revenue Growth Rate is calculated as:  (This year’s sales – last year’s sales) / last year’s sales)

As with a lot of KPI the information is readily available in a business’s accounting data file.  As long as the underlying transactions have been classified, posted correctly and consistently the results should be easily determined and reliable.
